Orhitec GIS develops solutions and applications in the field of information systems,
particularly Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
for governments, municipalities, businesses and the public.The department is involved
in the field of interactive public domain
government information and the integration of various information systems, in which
information is shared by way of Enterprise
Resource Projects and/or applications developed by the company. At the present stage,
we have developed several modules for
local governments, municipalities, and businesses in the field of GIS within the
overall framework of public domain information.
Among them are applications for the management of information regarding all local
government responsibilities such as: city
development, land registration, municipal revenue, property taxes, public and private
property, infrastructure, tourism, traffic,
municipal park and public garden maintenance etc.
One of the most important
of our development department applications is the pen tablet solution for Geographic
Systems. With this solution any organization which is involved in the field of GIS
can realize enormous savings in data collection.
overhead Our pen tablet solutions provide simple user interfaces and easy to use
The company is also involved
with advanced solutions beyond those required for public domain systems.
Recently, the company received recognition from the European Common Market,
to develop municipal applications for the European
2. Geographic Information Systems and Data Collection
Our GIS applications and methodology are based on photogrammetric mapping and orthophotos.
We can perform data collection in the following fields as turnkey projects using
our GIS technology:
For all of the above applications, and others, our company has developed an extensive
set of stand-alone applications for data collection, data checking (quality control),
data management, and many others.
These applications can be used as stand-alone programs, or as modules within our

4. Advantages and Capability of GIS as an Information Server
The solution that we offer is developed as a modular system that includes ‘layers’
of information. Our system is capable
of providing information to all members of an organization, and through the Internet,
to the public at large.
The construction of this single information server includes information that is
of interest to a wide-range of user, including
engineering departments, tax collection, education, tourist information, etc.
An important advantage of our system is the ability to update data and to extract
The updated information is immediately available to all users.
The potential users of the system in the municipality are
5. Orthophoto Products
Digital orthophotos are true photogrammetric-grade maps.
As such, they are invaluable for city planning (land use), infrastructure planning,
tax assessment, building permit regulation, and as a base for GIS (Geographic Information
Photographs can be processed in black-and-white, color, and infrared, and can be
printed at sizes up to 3x3 meters.
Photographs can be scanned at geodetic quality (negative or diapositive) to provide
Digital image processing
of aerial photographs to orthophotos is carried out according to the highest standards
as published by the Israel Government Mapping Institute.
The process includes geodetic scanning of negatives, orthorectification based on
DTM (digital terrain model), and mosaicing if necessary.
Products are supplied to the client on CD in TIFF format.
Orhitec GIS is staffed
by experts in geodetic engineering, computers, and photogrammetry.
Their knowledge and ability will ensure that our orthophoto products will meet the
highest expectations of our clients
